Reading Experience:

Evidence:
"The 'Straight from the Beach at Dunkirk' you mean? I ask you....To be quite candid I've never seen anything so ridiculous in all my life. Yesterday I read it in the paper about two fusiliers. I don't think it's popular publicity. Fancy two fellows having been through what they've been through. I think it's an insult to the average intelligence to put things like that in the paper."
